“Great Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Location is the best aspect of this service apartment hotel, as it is located at downtown of Auckland. Walk distance to Queens Street, However, the facilities are a little bit old, especially furniture. Totally stayed 5 nights, the first room which we stayed three nights got mulfunctioned wash machine. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Got great views!

Room Tip: Higher floor got great view. But the top penthouse doesn't have lift access.

This is an excellent central city hideaway for both work or holiday stays. Always well presented with all amenities.
I have stayed a few times and am very happy with the facilities & service.
One suggestion: Please give full instructions for heat pump/air con use.
I arrived late on a very cold night and it took a while to figure out how to get it working.

After reading previous reviews I knew that this accommodation may be hit and miss. I did, however, ask for a room that had been refurbished and on a high floor and that is exactly what we got. Our room was fantastic. Obviously it had been recently renovated and contained a kitchen and a washer/dryer combo. Our view was of the city and to the water. The apartments are very central to all Auckland has to offer. We parked in a car park that was only 50 metres away from the apartment. The receptionist was very friendly despite the office being a little dodgy looking and on the second floor. We would definitely stay here again. We paid less than $100 a night so it was a real bargain.

Room Tip: We accidentally parked next door in a carpark as we thought it was the carpark for the apartments...

If you want a reasonably priced one bedroom studio then look no further about $115 per night. This is a combination long term/ short term apartments. Rooms are nice and well layed out. Outside appearance and lobby needs an update. The personal office is shocking more like a store room. The staff are very friendly.

Room Tip: 12a is very refreshing with a fabulous view of the city.

Dear Guest

Thank you for your comments. We appreciate all feedback. It is good to see that you enjoyed your stay with us, and understand that the luggage in the office can be overwhelming at times. As we do accommodate guests who would like to leave their luggage with us for a few hours until they can check in or have a later plane to catch, there are times where we have more guests leaving their bags with us we do run out of storage space therefore we store in the office.
We look forward to any return visit

This place was amazing for price! Costing around the same as staying in a backpackers but without sharing a room, toilet, kitchen etc was very happy with my stay and loved the shower! Great kitchen, just wish my room was a bit higher up for a good view, Would defiantly recommend!

Stayed one night, wanted self-contained accom. within walking distance of Britomart. Room was well appointed with all mod-cons: bed was comfortable, shower clean and powerful, furnishings clean (if a little tired, but fine for the price). 5th-floor room was quiet once windows were closed. Staff were very helpful, polite and professional.
